Reflection factorizations of Singer cycles

Authors: Lewis, J.B. and Reiner, V. and Stanton, D.

The number of shortest factorizations into reflections for a Singer cycle in $GL_n(\mathbb{F}_q)$ is shown to be $(q^n-1)^{n-1}$. Formulas counting factorizations of any length, and counting those with reflections of fixed conjugacy classes are also given.
